Fletcher: Can’t Go Wrong With RG3, Luck

Newly re-signed Redskins captain London Fletcher made his first appearance back in the DC-community this weekend, helping to rebuild the Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington.

Rebuilding Washington seems to be Fletcher’s forte, and he made no bones about his happiness being back with the Redskins (via Jennifer X. Williams, CSN Washington):

I’m very excited.  To continue my work with the Washington Redskins was very important to me and important to the organization.  So I look forward to this season, and I’m thrilled to be returning to the Redskins.

It means a lot, and I definitely did not take for granted the fan support that I received.  The whole Twitter response, I think I was trending in DC, and I think I maybe went global! [laughter]

But to be appreciated by the fans is something that I definitely don’t take for granted

Fletcher also described himself as an NFL and Redskins football fan, and was excited to see who would be quarterback in Washington next season.  Mathematically speaking, either or both of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III will be available with the No. 2 pick.

As a professional football player, this has Fletcher excited for the team’s direction.  Just as a fan of the game, Fletcher feels confident about the quality of both players (via CSN Washington):

I’m excited to see who we’re gonna pick overall.  In general, just with the pieces we’ve added in free agency and the pieces we’ll add in the draft…we have our work cut out for us to get where we need to be.

Both [Griffin] and Luck are two great football players, and I don’t think you can go wrong with either one of the guys.  They carry themselves very well, both extremely great leaders and hard workers.

From that standpoint, you can’t do wrong with either one of those guys leading your franchise.  I think it’s just important to build with the right pieces around them, in order for that quarterback to be successful.

Expect Fletcher & Co. to be just as excited as the rest of Redskins Nation when the draft card is handed up on stage on Thursday evening in New York.  No matter who walks out on stage with the No. 1 Redskins jersey, Fletcher has a good feeling about the future in Washington.

    Comparing apple to apples he has the same numbers as Ray Lewis. I wish him success for the reminder of his career and sincerely hope his bust graces the Hall one day.

    love the RGIII fans, embrace a quality QB, would you rather have grossman? werfel, ferotte, campbell, beck, george, brunell, shuler, rossenfil, damn you folks got a short memory, Griffin will get you a championship, wait and see

    Kyle and his offensive system has been underestimated. If we just got a quarterback who could hit the open receiver the offense would consistently be in the NFL’s top ten. But to get a quarterback that is accurate, elusive, wide-receiver fast, AND intelligent – this offense will be in the top ten in Griffin’s first year in spite of the mistakes of inexperience.

    london is a class act, but its also plain he is a business man. I think he is destined for the HOF but i think like monk he will have a hard time getting in. fletch doesnt run his mouth, just does what he does, so no sports writers are interested in him, I mean why the hell hasnt he been #1 MLB in the probowl every year since he’s been a redskin? because no one writes about him except to say “yeah fletcher lead the league in takles….. and on another note #52 got a tackle, then yelled a slogan about it!”. London Fletcher is one of the best linebackers to ever wear the BnG, he will help make this season a playoff season
